THE mother of a toddler whose death at Glasgow hospital is under investigation claims she has documents which show that bacteria was found on the showerheard in her son's bathroom.

The Crown Office is investigating the death of a three-year-old boy at the Royal Hospital for Children in 2017.

The Mail on Sunday reported his death came in the same month as 10-year-old Milly Main, who was in remission from leukaemia before contracting an infection at QEUH which her mother believes was water based.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said the three-year-old boy's death was "fully investigated."

However, Scottish Labour's Monica Lennon said she is in contact with the boy's mother and said she is disputing the accuracy of its inquiry.

Ms Lennon said: "She is in receipt of documentation that confirms bacteria was present in the showerhead within her son’s hospital bathroom.

"When she last met with NHSGGC she walked out of the meeting and advised them she would be taking legal action and commissioning her own reports due to the board’s unsatisfactory answers.

"NHSGGC has admitted to her that faults and mistakes did happen on the night her son died but she believes they have not been entirely truthful.

"She will release further information about the circumstances of his death when she feels ready.

“There are serious questions mounting up for NHSGGC in relation to infections and patient safety at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and Royal Hospital for Children.

"The mother of ten-year old Milly Main, who also died in 2017, has gone public about her concerns and in response Scottish Labour has requested the Cabinet Secretary address Parliament immediately, as the facts must be established.

“Media statements being released by NHSGGC in reaction to the concerns being raised by whistleblowers and parents, are causing unnecessary upset to families, patients and staff."
